Finally, it has happened. The time has come. The most anticipated game, our favorite Halo Infinite has got a release date! The game promises to reboot the iconic series from the ground and looking at it, the possibilities are completely possible! It was supposed to be the launch title of the Xbox Series X and Series S consoles, but the COVID-19 pandemic forced everything out. One notable fact is that the game received less favorable feedback from the players after the gameplay reveal.
The Steam page of the game says: “The legendary Halo series returns with the most expansive Master Chief campaign yet and a ground-breaking free-to-play multiplayer experience”. And the game defines every word. It is the sixth main entry to the Halo series and the sixteenth game overall. It continues the story of the Master Chief and follows Halo 5: Guardian. We have seen the trailer and it gives a complete overview of the game.
Halo Infinite Release Date
Halo Infinite was first introduced way back in 2018 by Microsoft at E8. Since then, it had home off the radars completely. It was then at E3 2019 that the developers 343 Industries made it official that the game would be the launch title for the next-generation Xbox consoles – Series X and Series Y. But the COVID-19 pandemic hit hard and all the plans were canceled. It has been more than a year now, and the game will finally release on 8th December this year. It was confirmed during Opening Night Live at Gamescom 2021.
To Know Facts
Players will play as Master Chief who gets ready to confront the most ruthless for he has ever faced. He has to save the future of mankind which is hanging in balance.
As shown in the trailer, the gameplay will be a mix-mash of an intriguing storyline, some vehicle traversal, quite a lot of action-packed intense moments, and a whole lot of shooting.
Halo Infinite will have more open-world gameplay as compared to the last two games. There will be an in-game map called the ‘TacMap‘, which will allow players to explore different parts of the high Halo ring and tackle certain missions based on it. 343 Industries says the environment in Halo Infinite is “several times larger than that of the last two Halo games combined” and it is visible in the trailer.
The game will not come with the campaign co-op or Forge mode upon launch. The developers needed some extra polishing to the mode, so it won’t be available until the second season of the game. And the update will come almost after two or three months. So players have to play the latest story completely solo. 343 says that it plans to make the Forge available in the third season, meaning six or more months after launch. It’s a disappointment for sure.
Players can now upgrade Master Chief with some RPG-styled upgrades available in the “Upgrades” section on the menu screen.
Where will the game release
The game will be available for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC players. Will it be available on GeForce Now? Since Microsoft has got its own XCloud and Xbox Game Pass, the chances are negligible.
Be ready to witness the bombastic return of the Halo series once again!!!
